Since there is a abundance of clever techheads here, I figure I would
ask you fine folks. I received a email today and noticed the following
within the email;

Now the question: what exactly do the last 4 lines mean, starting with
References? Unique identifiers?

Well then it will all only bounce back since none of those addy's were
even remotely legit :)

Yes, most commonly used in newsgroup messages, they're used for threading
purposes.

Good deal, just what I thought. But why only three unique identifiers?
The email was sent/cc to more than three people. Dependent on certain
systems?

No, it's actually references to earlier messages in the discussion. NNTP
standards say a minimum of the first message and last two messages in the
reply chain should be included (I think that's the three, I could be
wrong, but I recall it is three references minimum to meet the RFC) so if
there's a missed message, the new message can still (probably) be
properly threaded.
